Strike actions

The next strike action is on April 8th from 10am-2pm. We will be busing members from around the region to rally at Auckland City Hospital.  Pick-up points can be found here.  Further 24-hour strikes are planned for the April 15th and 22nd.  More information will be coming out about these actions soon.

We need to know the numbers of members that will be coming on the buses from your site.  Please talk with your delegate and get commitments from you and your fellow members.  Return the Get On The Bus sheet to your organiser as soon as possible.

Also have a read of these resources and share with other members:


Additional strike action

In addition to the general strike actions, some sites and services are taking further additional action.  These actions focus on highlighting workload issues or placing additional costs on the DHBs.  Some of these actions have been partially notified to put additional pressure on the DHBs.  The actions for your DHB can be found below.  If you have any queries, please contact your organiser.
